8 bit+FRC is "capable" of doing HDR - but it has to quickly switch between 2 different colors to give you a "fake" or "approximate" color - that is not exactly the "real" color that you would see on a 10-bit panel.
It uses frame rate control to do that. Remember most HDR content is in movies that are 24p with panels being 120hz. My HU8550 has a 10bit panel and so does my KS8000. I wish I could convince my relative that the colors are fake and to trade with me if you prove this out to be fact but they never would lol. I can tell you without a doubt the Q80T is capable of better HDR than most TVs on the market. Remember switching quickly is instant when you’re talking about technology. It isn’t a fake or inaccurate color and your eyes will still see the color that is being produced. The method has been used with monitors and displays for years. If you really want to know for sure your best bet is to just see the TV for yourself.
